Dealing with severe anxiety and depression for most of my adolescence and beginning of my adulthood, naturally I was the ideal candidate for the standard pharmaceutical cocktail of antidepressants, anti-anxiety meds, and sleeping pills, all with heavy side effects.
After over 10 years of these medications being shoved down my throat by money hungry psychiatrists that do nothing to heal the underlying issue, I was on the verge of giving up when I decided to turn to alternative medicine, specifically psychedelic plant medicine, and more specifically psilocybin mushrooms. After reading dozens of articles and studies on microdosing psilocybin, I decided to try it.
I began with committing to 30 days, taking one capsule 5 days a week. I immediately began feeling relief and within a week saw the true healing potential and power of this medicine. I began to play around with blending other superfoods, medicinal mushrooms and medicinal herbs to attempt to balance out the physical effects of the psilocybin as well as increase the efficacy of the other ingredients and add to the potency of the medicine without adding to the psychedelic properties.
I wanted to make a more gentle capsule where i didn't feel ‘high’ but still got the benefits of psilocybin as well as an entire list of other amazing medicines. After about one year of taking this blend of mushrooms and superfoods on a consistent but constantly rotating schedule, taking time off to reset and integrate, I was completely off of every single one of my prescription medications that I had been dependent on for over 10 years before. This is a day I didn't think I would see unless a rehab facility and lots of money were involved.
After I was able to process the world in a way that I had never been able to, I realized that I had a purpose to share this medicine with the world in an attempt to spread the healing power of these amazing fungi teachers.
This is the future of medicine and the future of healing.
